The Trinidadian filmmaker Mariel Brown talks about her films on Carnival in Trinidad. She reflects on the process of producing the TV documentary 'Making Mass' in 2005, and later re-editing her material for a one hour documentary focusing on the people making the carnival rather than on a star designer. She had come to London to shoot parts of a new documentary about a Trinidadian woman artist and jewellery maker. The conversation, on a cool summer evening in the garden of our mutual friends, the interior architects Sevil Peach and Gary Turnbull, meanders gently around the delight and darkness of carnival, of travel and belonging, and of being a creative woman today.
